Memories in the Dune Grass

Memories in the Dune Grass

Caryn Brown

Do you remember those days at the shore when the air was warm and a gentle breeze caused the dune grass to sway? This contemporary art glass sculpture, "Memories in the Dune Grass," connects with those memories and emotions.

Arranging strips of glass on the narrow edge and heating those pieces to 1500 degrees, the artist created a thick slab of glass that represents the sand and the sky at the beach. The smooth glass is textured by raised dune grass elements and shaped into mirror image curved glass pieces. These pieces nest together in opposing curves. Because each curve is free standing, they can be displayed different ways.

Each piece is one of a kind so slight variations will occur.

Dimensions: 8" x 11"

About the Artist


Caryn Brown

Caryn Brown

Working in kiln glass, Caryn Brown has learned to trust her creativity and what she knows about the science and physics of glass.  From concept to creation, Brown actively manipulates the fundamental materials of sheet glass, frit (ground glass) and rod/stringers.  Her work is then surrendered to the kiln where the magic of heat, often in excess of 1500 degrees, works to change the raw materials into art.


Living in the Indiana Dunes National Park (United States,) Brown has access to natural landscapes that includes miles of beach along the southern shore of Lake Michigan. From sand dunes to lake shore, marsh to areas populated with trees, there is nature all around  me.  There is the fierceness of the winter winds across the Lake Michigan and the gentle breezes of summer. This nature, in all its forms, has the ability to bring about a calm serenity within her. She strives to reference that sense of energy, beauty and calm in the pieces she creates.
